During Artemis Fowl's last heist before giving it all up to be a part of a normal family with his mother and returned father, his trusty bodyguard and friend, Butler, gets mortally wounded and the C-Cube, which has lots of stolen fairy technology within it, is taken by a Chicago mobster. Once again, Artemis must get help from Holly Short and the LEPrecon Unit to help save Butler and get back the cube. And the price for that help? Only his memory and perhaps everything that has changed him from the ruthless criminal mastermind he was to the much more humane and moral, yet still a genius, Artemis he is now.
The best of the bunch so far. I really enjoyed seeing the nicer side of Artemis. The journal entries were a nice new inclusion, sharing his thoughts about the change in his father after his recovery.
Serial Readers Challenge
I am also counting this one towards my own yearly challenge of reading a book by an Irish author during the month of March. Not exactly the same as the previous books I have read, but it still meets my own requirements. :)
Here are some of the other books I have read:
2007- Oh, Play That Thing by Roddy Doyle
2006- A Star Called Henry by Roddy Doyle
2005- My Dream of You by Nuala O'Faolain
2004- The Country Girls Trilogy and Epilogue by Edna O'Brien
In 2003 we went to Ireland so there were a few more books read that year, I unfortunately can't remember them right now. I know one was an anthology of women authors. I also read The Princes of Ireland by Edward Rutherford as it was a gift that Christmas before along with the trip. I still need to get myself a copy of The Rebels of Ireland.
Happy St. Patrick's Day
